EM­PEROR LAKES, LODDISWELL, DEVON

Amiee’s Pool is the place to head if you’re af­ter a va­ri­ety of species this week­end. The wag­gler, feeder or pole will all work, as will a range of baits in­clud­ing mag­got, corn, pel­let and meat. Ex­pect roach, rudd, skim­mers, cru­cians, perch, tench and carp to show.

GLOUCES­TER PARK, BASILDON, ES­SEX

The ‘Canal Stretch’ is fish­ing well at the mo­ment with an­glers re­port­ing bags of tench and bream to 30lb-plus. Cast a wag­gler down the track, where you’ll find around 6ft of wa­ter. Fish a worm and corn cock­tail on the hook and cat­a­pult loose of­fer­ings of corn to max­imise your chances. Contact: 01268 282377 Post­code: SS14 3DE

HOLGAN FARM FISH­ERY, NARBETH, PEMBS

The Cru­cian Lake is the most con­sis­tent of the lot at the mo­ment, with 40lb bags of cru­cians, tench and sil­vers com­ing to worm and caster. Fish close to any cover and you won’t go too far wrong, and be sure to dot your float right down in or­der to spot those shy bites. Contact: 07796 517586 Post­code: SA67 8DJ

HORDLE LAKES COARSE FISH­ERY, LYMINGTON, HAMP­SHIRE

The aptly-named Tench Lake is the place to head for this week­end if you’re af­ter an 8lb au­tumn tinca. Fish a Method feeder down the edge or into open wa­ter with mi­cro pel­lets moulded around the cage for the best chance. Ex­per­i­ment with hook­baits, al­though dead red mag­gots are cur­rently pro­duc­ing the bet­ter stamp. Contact: 01590 683767 Post­code: SO41 0GA

IVY HOUSE LAKES, CHIPPENHAM, WILTS

The match lakes are still fish­ing their socks off, with an­glers re­port­ing nets of be­tween 80lb and 120lb of carp and skim­mers. Fish pel­let over mi­cros and mag­gots at 8m, then come down the edge late on with corn or 6mm pel­lets for the big­ger fish. Contact: 07977 093170 Post­code: SN15 4JU

GOLD VAL­LEY LAKES, ALDERSHOT, HANTS

A straight lead with a small PVA bag of pel­lets is work­ing well on all lakes for carp to dou­ble fig­ures. Al­ter­nate be­tween 8mm and 6mm banded pel­lets to see which works best on the day. Roach are show­ing well on the Gold Lake too, with caster shal­low ac­count­ing for nets to 25lb. Contact: 01252 350963 Post­code: GU11 2PT

OR­CHARD PLACE FARM, PAD­DOCK WOOD, KENT

Lake Five is one of the best win­ter bag­ging wa­ters in the area, with 100lb nets of F1s eas­ily at­tain­able. Pole­fished pel­let is the best tac­tic, switching be­tween short and long lines and feed­ing mi­cros and 4mm pel­lets to keep the fish in­ter­ested. Contact: 07860 608218 Post­code: TN12 6NY

RIB VAL­LEY LAKES, WARE, HERTS

The carp sport has slowed on the Rib Lake, al­though fish up to 25lb are still be­ing taken on the usual Cell, Hy­brid or Kkrill boilies. The venue’s pike sea­son is now un­der­way and fish up to 22lb have al­ready fallen to dead­baits. As the weed starts to die off and tem­per­a­tures fall, big roach and perch will re­spond to pole or feeder-fished worm or red mag­gots. Contact: 01920 462200 Post­code: SG12 0ES

ROYAL BERK­SHIRE FISH­ERY, WIND­SOR, BERKS

If the carp won’t play ball then the roach cer­tainly will, with mag­got, caster and even pel­let pro­vid­ing ac­tion from redfins to over 1lb on all of the lakes. Feed lit­tle-and-of­ten with a cat­a­pult, al­ter­nat­ing the depth reg­u­larly to keep in touch with the big­gest fish in your swim. Contact: 01344 891101 Post­code: SL4 4TE

THORPE LEA FISH­ERY, EGHAM, SUR­REY

Thorpe Lea is renowned for its carp sport, but there are also some mon­ster perch present, which come out reg­u­larly dur­ing the win­ter months. Fish to 3lb are not un­heard of and can be caught by fish­ing worm, mag­got or prawn on a bomb or wag­gler. Contact: 07934 000559 Post­code: TW20 8PG

TYLERS COM­MON, BRENTWOOD, ES­SEX

The Horse­shoe Lake has 60 pegs and is full of small is­lands but it is the open wa­ter that should be tar­geted at the mo­ment. Feed­ing spar­ingly is key, with a tiny pinch of mi­cro pel­lets and mag­gots af­ter ev­ery fish all that’s re­quired to tempt 50lb-plus nets of carp.

VIADUCT FISH­ERY, SOMERTON, SOM­ER­SET

The pic­turesque Match Lake is a pop­u­lar venue with plea­sure an­glers thanks to its stock­ing of F1s and carp to 6lb. There’s also a de­cent head of spec­i­men perch to over 3lb that can be caught us­ing worm and mag­got cock­tails fished down the mar­gins on the pole or wag­gler.
